From the time Tim Tebow was signed by the New York Jets to the moment Tebow stepped in New Jersey, the media hasn’t taken their foot off the Mark Sanchez pedal.
Every minute of every hour, regardless of what the Jets organization stated in the past, Mark Sanchez is slowly being pushed away from the starting job. The Tebow acquisition has already created an earthquake in New York, thus impacting some players in the team.
One of these players is Drew Stanton, who the Jets acquired in free agency only to be traded again to the Colts a few weeks later due to the arrival of Tim Tebow. Jets CB Antonio Cromartie had also spoke out expressing his disapproval via Twitter.

“We don’t need Tebow,” Cromartie tweeted on Tuesday. “We sell out every home game let him go to Jacksonville Tampa or Miami. Our wildcat offense can b ran by J. Kerley or Joe McKnight we straight.”
On Wednesday, Cromartie posted, “Y bring Tebow in when we need to bring in more Weapons for @Mark_Sanchez let’s build the team around him.”
These tweets were posted before the Tim Tebow acquisition and you’d find it very amusing that once the Tebow deal was official, Cromartie immediately countered and completely had a change of heart.
“He’s a guy that brings a different atmosphere to the locker room and the huddle,” Cromartie said. “We were missing that last year — a guy that can take control and do the things that we need to. (Tannenbaum and Ryan) feel like he can come in and bring us that spark on offense when he’s in certain packages.”
In any case, the New York Jets, similar to previous years have once again accomplished their goal and that is to have everyone that follows the NFL focus on “Gang Green.” The New York Jets have made it clear that the move to acquire Tebow did not have anything to do with marketing sales and attracting publicity to the team. It was simply described as a legitimate roster move. Nice try Mr. Johnson, but no one’s buying.
Throughout this whole saga, one thing Mark Sanchez has done correctly is staying quiet. The four-year quarterback has been nothing but a consummate professional. Sources close to Sanchez have stated that it has been bothering the young signal caller, but has chose to keep his emotions in-house and stay positive.
Jets WR Santonio Holmes had tweeted that he fully supports his quarterback and actually decided to post a photo wearing a T-shirt as evidence.
“Hey man, I got your back! Gotta stand UP, and stand OUT for OUR KID!
This should mean a lot to Sanchez, especially because of the rough patch the two had experienced last year. There’s only so much a person can take.
Speaking of one’s patience, Tim Tebow has already expressed to the media that he is very excited to call Mark Sanchez his teammate. The so-called new “wildcat” option for the New York Jets is looking forward to getting to know Sanchez in order to build comradery. So much that Tim Tebow is already shopping for a house near Sanchez’s home. Crazy right?
According to Fox Sports, Tebow is considering renting a cottage near where Sanchez lives. Wow, talk about Mark Sanchez being “Carl Winslow” just like the show “Family Matters” with Tim Tebow as “Steve Urkel.”
What a year this is going to be for the New York Jets. As Bart Scott always says, “can’t wait!”
